Open source technologies are software platforms provided by companies with an open source code. The code is publicly accessible for users to easily share, design, and modify. This type of technology allows you to be more hands on than proprietary platforms.
Why Open Source Technology?
As organizations review the myriad of options available in today’s human capital management (HCM) software, some find that they prefer open source platforms because they provide independence from ongoing subscriptions and licensing fees. With an open source platform, organizations can easily enhance, customize, and modify solutions to meet their organizations’ goals while benefiting from flexible solutions that have unique cost and support models. GP Strategies® has extensive experience implementing, hosting, and supporting clients on open source platforms. We help you choose, implement, and configure a platform to meet your business needs. Our technical consultants are knowledgeable about the leading platforms on the market and can help you choose, implement, and modify a platform configured to meet your business needs.
Technology Selection and Implementation Services
GP Strategies offers services to help you select and implement the right open source technology for your organization based upon our years of experience in HCM needs assessment and business requirement analysis. Whether you need assistance outlining requirements and selecting the right technology for your organization or implementing the technology once you have selected it, our team has the knowledge and expertise to help you achieve your business goals.
Whether you are implementing one platform or several, you may need to integrate your new open source software with an existing platform. Creating seamless integrations across your platforms ensures that your users have a modern and user-friendly experience. Our team of technical consultants have experience with both open source and proprietary software, so they can help you to achieve the integrations that your environment may require.
Many times, open source technology providers don’t offer direct support, so you will need to partner with an outside company to gain that support for your users. GP Strategies offers several customizable support packages including a multilanguage 24/7 help desk for submission of tickets and incident management. Our services can be adjusted to fit your needs and your budget so that you don’t pay for what you don’t need.
